Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Dengue can present with rash and fever associated with severe joint pain. As your wife is pregnant, stronger antibiotics have to be avoided in her case. I would suggest continuation of the present treatment with regular follow ups with her gynec doctor. If rashes becomes very annoying then application of calamine lotion over the rashes will soothe them.
Thanks.
